About the Devialet Phantom II 98dB

Compact form factor, formidable sound

The Devialet Phantom II 98dB has an appealing streamlined shape — and gives you amazingly clear, detailed, and robust sound. Two side-firing aluminum woofers deliver powerful, hard-hitting bass. They combine with a centered aluminum full-range driver to create an expansive soundstage that fills your room.

Compact form factor, formidable sound

Devialet Phahntom Reactor 900

The Devialet Phantom II 98dB has an appealing streamlined shape — and gives you amazingly clear, detailed, and robust sound. Two side-firing aluminum woofers deliver powerful, hard-hitting bass. They combine with a centered aluminum full-range driver to create an expansive soundstage that fills your room.

High-performance sound

The Phantom II 98dB has a built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) that can play high-resolution digital audio. And with 400 watts of continuous (RMS) power, it can simulate the experience of being right in front of the stage at a concert.

Wireless options

Stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The Devialet control app comes with Spotify® Connect built in. With your Spotify subscription, you can stream from this service without leaving the app.

Built-in Apple AirPlay® 2 lets you play audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies. The speaker is also compatible with Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP) high-resolution streaming, for music stored on your media server or NAS drive.

Wired options

If your Wi-Fi isn't up to snuff, you can hardwire the Phantom II 98dB to your network with an Ethernet cable. A combination mini optical digital audio input/stereo minijack audio input gives you even more options. Use your computer or portable player's headphone jack to connect to the speaker. Or run an optical digital cable (with a Toslink-to-mini-optical digital adapter) from your TV to the Phantom Reactor 900.

A speaker like no other

The coolest feature is the side-firing bass drivers. When I powered on the Phantom, they pulsed, as if the speaker was breathing. And when I started playing music — well that was a breath of fresh air. Those drivers delivered bass so full it was almost visceral, especially at high volumes. Bass-heavy hip-hop tracks were slamming!

Both the bass and treble were tight. That made a huge difference when I played music at low volumes. My tunes sounded just as clean and clear no matter how loud or soft I set the volume.

Roon-compatible for serious music lovers

The Phantom II 98dB is also compatible with Roon, a subscription digital music player for your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Roon accesses your digital music collection from your iTunes library or NAS drive. It also works with your TIDAL subscription.

Roon lets you do deep dives into your music, showing artist bios, photos, reviews, and lyrics. Roon can also suggest other artists and songs based on your selections, making it easy to discover new music you'll enjoy.

ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid) Amplification: A Devialet-patented technology, ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid) gives you all the sophistication of Class A analog with all the power and compactness of Class D digital. The best of both worlds for amplification of unparalleled clarity and transparency, whatever the volume. The Devialet Phantom II 98dB is equipped with a 400 watt (RMS) / 900 watt (Peak) amplifier.

Unleash your music's full potential all the way down to 18Hz.

ACE (Active Cospherical Engine): ACE (Active Cosperical Engine) is the technology responsible for the Phantom II 98dB's radical spherical architecture.

Q
? Is the phantom thats on the wish app the same as this one
[ Gerrod  Jan 17, 2020 ]

A
I can neither confirm nor deny that it is the same - but I suspect it is not. You would be wise to check with Devialet directly before investing that much money in a high quality speaker like the Phantom. You can reach them directly at 844-975-6718.
